Mindful Leadership

We live in a VUCA world
  • V - Volatile
  • U - Uncertain
  • C - Complex
  • A - Ambiguous
This new world may explain why some leadership theories are no longer effective.

Yet many leaders continued to base their leadership behaviours on outdated models.

Because like everyone else, leaders probably do a fair amount of work on auto-pilot.

The latest thinking on effective leadership is that leaders needs self-awareness (a clear idea of what makes you tick, your strengths, weaknesses, beliefs and motivations) and must be well grounded and centred.   Mindfulness helps you to manage your mind by regulating and focusing your attention, making you aware of your thoughts and emotions.  Mindfulness is a state of being fully present, aware of oneself, and sensitive to one’s reactions to stressful situations.

Leaders who are mindful tend to be more effective in understanding and relating to others and motivating them toward shared goals.
